Identification

POWERED BY MERLIN

Small, nondescript, earthy-brown colored bird, with a graduated tail. Note particularly rich, buffy throat, short, indistinct grey eyebrow, and pale iris. Very secretive, singly or in pairs, within wet vegetation in understory of wet forests in the hills and mountains of Sri Lanka, on or near the ground. Uniform appearance, with buff throat and inconspicuous gray eyebrow separate this species from all other small brown birds in its limited range. Short song a musical “chiwee-chiwee-chiwee”. Calls include a short, sharp “wit” and a wet “chip” note.
